An alcoholic Little League coach tries to turn a team of misfits into champions in the Bad News Bears. Find out if this baseball flick strikes out or hits a homerun.

Bad News Bears - Bad Baseball

Morris Buttermaker (Billy Bob Thorton) is an alcoholic rodent exterminator who agrees to manage a team of Little League losers to make some extra cash. His team, known as the Bears, is made up of all the castoffs from every other team, including the hot-tempered Tanner (Timmy Deters), the overly obese Engelberg (Brandon Craggss) and a kid who's in a wheelchair. But when the stuck-up coach (Greg Kinnear) of the rival Yankees ridicules Buttermaker and his Bad News Bears, Buttermaker sets out to teach the Bears the basics of baseball and get them into the league championship game. While teaching his team how to field, pitch and hit, Buttermaker also recruits his daughter, Amanda (Sammi Kraft), who happens to be a gifted pitcher, and bad boy Kelly Leak (Jeffrey Davies) to join his team of misfits.

Bad News Bears - Little League Laughs

The Bad News Bears is a remake of the 1976 movie and it's just as funny. Billy Bob Thorton is hilarious as coach Morris Buttermaker and the players on the Bears are unique characters you can identify with. The best part of the Bad News Bears is the interaction between the teammates as they go from pretenders to contenders and learn to become a team. There's plenty of kicks to the groin, tasteless jokes and baseball bloopers that'll keep you laughing the entire movie.

Bad News Bears - DVD Features

Join Billy Bob Thorton in deleted scenes and driector Richard Linklater in featurettes about the making of the movie. There aren't a ton of extras on this disc, but enough to keep you from watching more Friends re-runs on TV.

Bad News Bears - The Bottom Line

The Bad News Bears is definetly good news. This flick is a grand slam comedy. It's packed with funny lines ("You guys are hitting like [kwlink]Helen Keller[/kwlink] at a pinata party"), crude humor, and a good message about the importance of playing as a team and sticking together. If you've ever played Little League baseball or played on a team that totally sucked, you'll totally relate to the Bad News Bears. From the winning-obsessed coaches to the crappy umps, Bad News Bears is a funny look at a team's journey from the laughing stock of Little League to a championship contender. While Bad News Bears is one very funny flick, it might not appeal to everyone (if you're easily offended by tasteless jokes, stay away)! There's plenty examples of the kind of nasty language you've probably heard in your own Little League dugout, so you might want to leave your younger sister or brother at home.
